Hot Clicks: Spelling Bee Celebrations; Danielle Knudson
Dez Bryant’s Favorite Speller
America has a new hero and his name is Nihar Janga, the 2016 Scripps National Spelling Bee co-champion. Janga stole my heart by shooting opponent Jairam Hathwar a death look and then throwing up Dez Bryant's signature X upon winning. Even Dez was impressed. The event also featured a bunch of awkward celebration dabs and an incredible running man breakout.
We’re Not Going Home
The Warriors beat the Thunder to close the gap to 3–2 in their best-of-seven series. Stephen Curry pulled off the rare mid-play chest bump before converting a game-clinching layup. He then told everyone he’s not going home. Steve Kerr did some weird mouth stuff and Russell Westbrook gave the Warriors some postgame motivation going into Game 6 on Saturday. I can’t wait.
